The Breath of Us


day 4... napowrimo.net.  

A pantoum 

We are having the very breath of us taken from us
Then, the sky shows blue in the most polluted cities
Mama Gaia says no more of this suffocation
And the dolphins begin to breathe better underwater

Then the sky shows blue in the most polluted cities
It's in the stop, the slow down, the no more busy
And the dolphins begin to breathe better underwater
The Earth is quick to show how it can be healed by us

It's in the stop, the slow down, the no more busy
We begin to thrive in the quietude; the stillness of a day 
The Earth is quick to show how it can be healed by us
It takes a global pandemic for us to begin to hear Her

We begin to thrive in the quietude; the stillness of a day
Settling in to what it feels like to listen more clearly to the all around
It takes a global pandemic for us to begin to hear Her
She has never been a quiet voice, we have simply drowned her out

Settling in to what it feels like to listen more clearly to the All around
Mama Gaia says no more of this suffocation
She has never been a quiet voice, we have simply drowned her out
We are having the very breath of us taken from us.

There Is NoWay to Give Up On NOW… a pantoum


day 12 NaPowriMo…

 

A Pantoum..

 

There is no way to give up on Now

It is always happening like breathing

Like there always seems enough of it

Till there isn’t any more physical reality

 

It is always happening like breathing

I pass you with an inhale taking you in

Till there isn’t any more physical reality

Taken back to infinite creation

 

I pass you with an inhale taking you in

There is an endless exchange between us

Taken back to infinite creation

Not knowing you doesn’t mean I don’t know you

 

There is an endless exchange between us

In my breath I am reminded that all is One

Not knowing you doesn’t mean I don’t know you

We are mixing the air that is shared by us all

 

In my breath I am reminded that all is ONE

Separation is an illusion made from fearful thinking

We are mixing the air that is shared by us all

For a moment I will hold you deep with in myself

 

Separation is an illusion made from fear thinking

Like there always seems enough of it

We are mixing the air that is shared by us all

There is no way to give up on NOW

A Fire On Your Skin… A Pantoum


heart n pink hand N FLAMESlittle

The spirit of it leaves a fire on your skin

Longing for the rain to come

The days have a way of being so dry

Smelling the moist in the passing clouds

 

Longing for the rain to come

See the grey gloom gather in the east

Smelling the moist in the passing clouds

Inside it pours, outside, so arid dry

 

See the grey gloom gather in the east

Strip down naked raw

Smelling the moist in the passing clouds

Vulnerable, scared you do it anyway

 

Strip down naked raw

The days have a way of being so dry

Vulnerable, scared, you do it anyway

The spirit of it leaves a fire on your skin
